The prime minister apologised for allowing a "confusing picture" to emerge over recent days about his direct connection with the animal.

Prime Minister David Cameron admitted he'd ridden the mare with his old classmate Charlie Brooks... :confused:

David Cameron denies riding since election
It's tough being the PM. There's a lot of sacrifice involved, I guess.

Mayor of London has insisted he did not borrow the horse at any stage.

Have to admit that when I saw the headline, 'Boris denies riding Raisa' I assumed it was some dirt slinging connected to the Russian election.

'Tis not the horse pulls the cart but the oats'

"The prime minister does not have meetings on horses."

Good to see that policy is not being made on the hoof then. :)

Hate to spoil the fun by going all political...

"David Cameron has not been straight about just how close he was to senior executives at News International, and it's time for him come clean about the extent of this relationship."

Also noteworthy...

Almost three hours into his testimony-by-satellite to Lord Justice Leveson's phone-hacking inquiry, the former Scotland Yard troubleshooter John Yates said rather plaintively: "In fairness to me." Quite so, the judge assured him, but there was really no need. From his bolthole in Bahrain, where he is now helping improve local police efficiency, Yates had been very fair to himself all day.


Does efficiency include mopping up after the various killings of protestors and arrests of activists?

Serious coverage of the relationship between the Police, the Media and Government, as revealed through the hacking scandals is lacking.

No wonder the horses are laughing.

Cameron signed his texts LOL, which he thought meant "Lots of Love" :D

We can now add Carrgate to Horsegate

Comedian Jimmy Carr was using a (legal) tax avoidance scheme to reduce his tax bill.

Cameron (who has no issue with Tory donors or large financial institutions doing the same thing) criticised him quite harshly. Carr has said he will change his ways

So Cameron has a go on his mates' pony, and leaves his 8 year old after him in the pub.

Yet, he's not Rats from the Flats.

Does not compute

Cammy has been behaving a little oddly recently. Personally I would predict that the upshot will be a press feeding frenzy involving outage of all Tory hangers on/donors doing similar things. Should be fun (licks chops in anticipation).

As good as Back to Basics, perhaps???

Cameron caught napping..
